Reception[edit]

Variety magazine describe it as "Coyote Ugly: The Series". Brian Lowry categorizes this Texas based show as an attempt to recreate the regional appeal of shows such as Duck Dynasty, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Jersey Shore, but criticizes the "dreary sameness to these characters and situations" and says that very little of the show seems real.[9]
